Lonzo Ball ($8,600 FD/$8,000 DK) – Ball is in a nice flow of late going over 36 FanDuel points in 8 of his late 10 games. He gets the Mavs tonight and should be a threat for a triple-double like he usually is.
Trey Burke ($6,300 FD, $5,800 DK) – Speaking of players in a nice flow, Trey Burke has been revelation since he’s come to New York. Burke exploded for 42 and 12 against the Hornets in his last game and will look to continue his great play against the Sixers tonight.
Shabazz Napier ($3,500 FD, $3,800 DK) – Probably the player who will be the highest owned on tonight’s slate. With Lillard out tonight and with Napier’s price being so cheap, you almost have to play him because of the upside he presents.
Other good buys: Kemba Walker ($8,600 FD, $8,500 DK), Terry Rozier ($7,300 FD, $6,900 DK), Ben Simmons ($9,300 DK)
Donovan Mitchell ($7,900 FD, $7,500 DK) – You think the Nuggets regret trading that #13 pick now? Mitchell has been amazing down the stretch as he wills his team towards the playoffs. The Celtics are a tough matchup but Mitchell has shown he’s pretty much matchup-proof.
C.J. McCollum ($7,900 FD, $7,500 DK) – McCollum figures to be heavily owned tonight with Lillard out and with good reason. Without Lillard, McCollum will take over playmaking duties which may result in a big day for him.
Andrew Wiggins ($7,000 FD, $6,800 DK) – Wiggins has been on a nice run here of late as he tries to help the Wolves reach the playoffs for the first time since 2004. He gets the Hawks tonight who have been very friendly to opposing offenses.
Other good buys: Nicolas Batum ($6,500 FD, $6,600 DK), Lou Williams ($7,800 FD, $8,200 DK), Troy Daniels ($4,100 FD, $4,400 DK).
LeBron James ($12,500 FD, $11,600 DK) – James will be another player that will be highly owned tonight but even at his price tag, he’ll be worth it as he should be able to dominate the Hornets after a down night last night.
Josh Jackson ($7,500 FD, $7,100 DK) – It doesn’t look like Booker or Warren will play for the Suns tonight which means Jackson should get significant minutes once again. Jackson has played extremely well with Booker and Warren out and he should be able to keep that going tonight against the Clippers.
Mario Hezonja ($5,600 FD, $5,300 DK) – With all the injuries the Magic have piled up, Hezonja will once again be in line for heavy minutes against the Nets tonight. Look for Hezonja to hit value tonight against the Nets’ poor defense.
Other good buys: Taurean Price ($7,500 FD, $7,100 DK), Michael Beasley ($6,500 FD, $5,900 DK), Robert Covington ($6,000 FD, $5,900 DK).
Ben Simmons ($9,800 FD, $9,300 DK) – If it wasn’t for Simmons, Mitchell would be the run-away candidate for rookie of the year. Instead, Simmons is the front-runner and will look to continue his stellar year against the Knicks tonight.
Aaron Gordon ($8,000 FD, $8,300 DK) – Aaron Gordon went off against the Suns in his last game and now he gets the Nets tonight. Expect another strong performance from Gordon and he tries to finish up the year on a high note.
Jeff Green ($4,100 FD, $4,400 DK) – Kevin Love left last night’s game early last night because of a possible concussion. If Love misses tonight’s game, Green will be in line for major minutes and should be able to thrive against the Hornet’s weak defense.
Other good buys: Julius Randle ($8,500 FD, $8,100 DK), Tobias Harris ($7,500 FD, $7,300 DK), Luke Kornet ($3,600 FD, $3,400 DK).
Karl-Anthony Towns ($10,800 FD, $9,500 DK) – Towns gets a great matchup tonight against the Hawks who have more than accommodating to other centers this season.
Nikola Vucevic ($8,700 FD, $7,800 DK) – Brooklyn has been another defense that’s been friendly towards centers this year which puts Vucevic in an excellent spot as he’s had big games against them in the past.
Brook Lopez ($6,900 FD, $6,400 DK) – I’m a bit hesitant to recommend Lopez because while the Mavericks have allowed some huge rebounding games to centers, Lopez isn’t a good rebounder. That being said Lopez has been playing well and is priced at a point where he should hit value tonight.
Other good buys: Joel Embiid ($10,200 FD, $9,400 DK), Rudy Gobert ($8,900 FD, $7,700 DK), Jusuf Nurkic ($6,900 FD, $6,400 DK).
